Oklahoma Citians: Don’t forget to vote in the election tomorrow, Tuesday, March 3.
It’s important. It involves all of us here in central Oklahoma because what the Oklahoma City Council decides about downtown projects or its public transportation systems affect us all, whether we live in Oklahoma City, Midwest City, Moore, Edmond or Yukon.
Are we all in this together or not? That’s not the question. That’s a transition into a new paragraph. Paragraphs. I’m drowning in paragraphs. Of course we’re all in this together.
I want Oklahoma City to be a fun, vibrant place. I want all of us to lighten up, have some fun, groove to the tunes. I want to dance with the ducks on the sidewalks around the Bricktown canal. I want to sing original songs from my heart in front of Chelinos. Please. One dollar in my guitar case. Only one dollar? Songs should cost two dollars. How much should a song cost? If that’s what we’re arguing about, then we’re going to be okay.
So what I think is important in tomorrow’s election is Dr. Ed Shadid. He should definitely be reelected to his Ward 2 council seat. He asks tough questions. He’s for a green city, a fun city, a diverse city, the city of love and compassion. I bet he would pay two dollars for a song if he liked it.
If a space ship from another planet landed in the middle of Oklahoma City, I would absolutely want Ed to be the first person to initiate contact. Ed, what did they say? What do they want? What do we do now? I know this: Ed would speak truthfully. Truth can be scary, but it’s always beautiful in the end.
Here’s my more extensive endorsement of Ed.
Vote. Please. Dr. Ed Shadid for Ward 2.
